Reading is awesome! I love being consumed by a great book. Right now, I am reading Digital Fortress by Dan Brown. It’s an awesome read, totally thrilling and it’s a real page turner.
When reading, I can’t help but thinking, “what should I read next” even when I have a book in my hands. I am always willing to take reccomendations from friends, but sometimes we don’t have the same taste in books. This seems to be a common problem. Allow me to save you from your troubles. WhatshouldIreadnext.com is an awesome website that will give you a few options for your next book. This website will match you with your new book in seconds based on your favorite books and authors. Needless to say, this is a pretty awesome website.
This year I am challenging myself to read at least seven new books. While in college, I never wanted to read for enjoyment because my textbooks took precedents. Since being out of school, I’ve read dozens of books, some I couldn’t even tell you the names. I am a firm believer that reading is something to keep the mind active and your imagination running wild.
Finding a new book to read is hard. Sometimes, even reading a book is hard. When you go to a movie with someone, you have instant gratification once the film ends because each of you will spit comments back and forth. For me, it’s hard to read a book sometimes becasue I won’t get that opportunity to discuss a book–this is probably why book clubs started.
Currently, Monuments of Men is on my docket. This book has been on my back burner since I saw a preview for it in the Summer. I am excited about reading this book and really diving into it. Based on a true story of the greatest treasure hunt in history, what’s there not to be excited about? They’ve turned this book into a film that will be released at the end of February. Take a peek at the trailer, doesn’t this make you want to read the book?
If you have any suggestions for books to read, please let me know! I am interested in reading all, and any books this year.
